Kanye West may take a seat on the judges panel for the next season of the highly popular Fox television show American Idol.

According to TMZ, sources close to the production team say Idol execs have reached out to Kanye to join the judging panel for Season 12, and he has expressed interest.

The sources add that Mr. West is unsure about accepting the offer and is on the fence, because he isn’t sure if appearing on the show suits his best interest at this time.

If Kanye West does accept the position as idol judge, word has it that he would be paid $18 million for the season.

Kanye West is not the only hip-hop artist who is on the rumored list of American Idol Season 12 judges, as YMCMB femcee Nicki Minaj’s name was also mentioned as one of the new judges for season 12, but representatives for her or Idol have not responding to the claims.
